ABC Cancels Dramas ‘Castle’ and ‘Nashville’

'The Muppets,' 'Galavant' and 'Marvel's Agent Carter' Also on the Chopping Block

ABC has decided not to move forward with new seasons of “Castle,” which will now conclude after eight seasons, and perennially ratings-challenged “Nashville,” which would have been heading into season five. The cancellation of “Castle,” which had previously announced co-stars Stana Katic and Tamala Jones would not be returning, is a surprise given that Nathan Fillion recently renewed his contract.

Also not returning on ABC is the revival of “The Muppets,” musical farce “Galavant” and “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” the spin-off from “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.” The network did, however, issue a second season pick-up to sitcom “Dr. Ken.”
